Intel sets goals for Windows 8 tablets

More than nine hours battery life and 30 days of standby are among the goals Intel is listing for Windows 8 tablets, according to CNET.

The chipmaker offered those specifics during a conference in Beijing, according to CNET, which repots that Intel’s Atom Z2760 “Clover Trail” chip will power the upcoming Intel-based Windows 8 tablets.

(Microsoft is planning for Windows 8 to run on two different types of tablets: More traditional x86-based machines running on Intel and AMD chips, and machines that run on ARM, the system-on-a-chip design that powers the iPad and Android tablets.)

The Windows 8 devices Intel envisions will be either 10-inch tablets or 11-inch hybrid (machines that can easily transform from a tablet to a notebook) and less than 9 millimeters thick, according to CNET.
